Survey from Booking.com shows Dubai is number one international destination Indian travellers want to visit
Indian travellers looking to celebrate the end of coronavirus with a trip away have listed Dubai as their number one international destination, according to the latest survey from Booking.com.
Despite the restrictions on movement imposed as a result of the deadly Covid-19 virus, and the economic nightmare which has accompanied it, Indians have not lost their appetite for travel.
According to the survey, Dubai tops the wish list of international destinations they want to visit post-coronavirus, ahead of Ubud (Bali), Bangkok (Thailand), Istanbul (Turkey) and London (UK).
A report from Colliers International last year revealed that the number of Indians visiting the UAE is set to rise to 5.29 million by 2024.
In terms of domestic destinations, Indian travellers are looking to visit Mumbai, followed by Goa, New Delhi, Lonavala and Bengaluru.
"It's amazing to see the array of different travel experiences our customers have been busy dreaming about while they wait for the opportunity to travel again," said Ritu Mehrotra, Booking.com country manager, India, Sri Lanka and Maldives.
